Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but not so powerful It’s pretty big and I would’ve thought it had more succion power with the bigger motor, but it seems pretty nornal.

Can this be used to pick up poplar fluff in the backyard?

Asked by: Ellie
Absolutely. This vacuum will pick up pretty much everything. I have had no issues with mine. I have had them for a few years now. Great vacuum.

Does this only come with a dry filter? It indicates only the one filter? All of the other brands I've seen have both filters (which makes sense if its a wet/dry vac?). So what about wet pickup? I assume it would need at least a foam sleeve? thanks

Asked by: Ryan
you only need filter for dry applications you take out filter for wet and it works well

I just bought this vacuum from the homedepot.  I wonder if the included filter and dust bag in the box will endure diatomaceous earth, which is really fine dust like drywall dust.  Should I purchase HEPA or better quality filter/dust bag for the job?

Asked by: DHong
I would suggest wearing a good dust mask if your concern is that great. While a dust bag would contain the dust, you still walk in it before attempting with your vacuum. Fine dust like that and say concrete dust gets easily stirred up in the process of vacuuming it regardless of what vacuum you use. Diaomatceous earth is basically "chalk dust" in my estimation, made of diatoms.

Why this one is cheaper than other lower capacity Vac (45.5 L (12 Gal.) 5 Peak HP Wet/Dry Vac)?

Asked by: Alex A
It's a "Special Buy" so it's only offered limited times. It has a 1-7/8 inch hose diameter and one general purpose nozzle attachment, where as the 12 gallon RIDGID model includes 3 attachments and has 2-1/2 inch hose diameter for picking larger debris/reducing clogs. Smaller hose diameter and lack of accessories may not be an issue for some, but a deal breaker for others. You can use other hoses and attachments sold separately with it, so there's always the option to configure your own shop vacuum setup with this model.
